About Us

Union Square Review was born out of the realization that paid book reviews are too expensive for what they have become: a plot summary with one sentence of opinion or, as some call it, the “money quote.” Initially, we launched Union Square as a traditional but more affordable book review service than the leading paid book review services (Kirkus, Clarion, Blue Ink, IndieReader) with the added benefit of providing the author with the reviewer’s full scoring rubric (rather than a simple synopsis of the story), which allowed the author to fully understand the assessment behind the review.

We have since decided to expand our offerings to include social media influencer campaigns and book launch campaigns, for authors seeking reader engagement and social media traction.
